RiverMeadow Managed Migration Service - Expediting Cloud AdoptionBy Jill Hourani on May 2, 2018 5:05:12 AM
More and more, cloud computing is enabling day-to-day business to quickly and cost effectively operate in the Cloud. According to the most recent McAfee report, 97% of organizations are currently using at least one cloud service, while 65% of them have a cloud-first strategy.
However, there are still numerous hurdles and technical difficulties that need to be addressed by cloud providers in order to drive greater cloud adoption.
The Context: The Cloud Migration Service Providers’ Challenges
Cloud Service Providers are often challenged with onboarding varied, old and often complicated customer workloads. Service providers are expected to handle these complex onboarding requirements and to deliver services quickly, seamlessly and without customer interruption.
